Watch Eddie Murphy in the Awesome Trailer for 'Dolemite Is My Name'

Rejoice, people. We’re about to get lots and lots of Eddie Murphy over the next few years. Netflix was smart enough to give the iconic comedian and actor a similar deal to the one they have in place with Adam Sandler at a reportingly $70 million large. That means more Eddie Murphy comedy specials and more Eddie Murphy movies on the easiest and breeziest streaming service.

First up is an amazingly over-the-top comedy called Dolemite Is My Name, where Murphy plays the titular character based on the real-life comedian-actor-rapper Rudy Ray Moore.

The trailer, which you can check out above, is truly great, and the movie looks like so much fun. It's set to drop sometime this fall.
